Quantum information applications place stringent demands on the development of platforms that can host them. Color centers in diamond have been identified as important media for quantum information processing. Accordingly, ...
We consider using a secret key and a noisy quantum channel to generate noiseless public communication and noiseless private communication. The optimal protocol for this setting is the publicly-enhanced private father ...
To date, the trace elemental analysis of solids with inhomogencous internal structure has been limited, particularly in the case of adsorbents. High-energy ion beam based particle induced X-ray emission (PIXE) is an ideal ...
Recently, quantum adiabatic computation has attracted more and more attention in the literature. It is a novel quantum computation model based on adiabatic approximation, and the analysis of a quantum adiabatic algorithm ...
The dynamic capacity theorem characterizes the reliable communication rates of a quantum channel when combined with the noiseless resources of classical communication, quantum communication, and entanglement. In prior work, ...
We consider the simulation of interacting high-dimensional systems using pairwise interacting qubits. The main tool in this context is the generation of effective many-body interactions, and we examine a number of different ...
Measurement based quantum computation, which requires only single particle measurements on a universal resource state to achieve the full power of quantum computing, has been recognized as one of the most promising models ...
We predict the scattering loss in rectangular high index-contrast waveguides, using a new variation of the classical approach of coupled-mode theory. The loss predicted by this three-dimensional (3-D) model is considerably ...
We present detailed experimental and numerical studies of random lasing in weakly scattering systems. The interference of scattered light, which is weak in the passive systems, is greatly enhanced in the presence of high ...
Physics experiments for students not majoring in physics may have little meaning for those students and appear to them unconnected in any way to their majors. This affects student engagement and influences lhe extent to ...
The goal of this paper is to compare strategies for reducing partial volume effects by either minimising the cause (i.e. improving resolution) or correcting the effect. Correction for resolution loss can be achieved either ...
We show that in some cases, catalyst-assisted entanglement transformation cannot be implemented by multiple-copy transformation for pure states. This fact, together with the result we obtained in R. Y. Duan, Y. Feng, X. ...

We describe a method for accurate calculation of the Relative Local Density of States (RLDOS) as a function of frequency and position in finite sets of coated cylinders. The RLDOS is important, since it describes the ...
We derive the appropriate form of the relative local density of states (RLDOS) for the two-dimensional Helmholtz equation in a homogeneous lossy medium, and give the corresponding result for the three-dimensional equation. ...
Ordinary Portland-cement clinkers were characterised using neutron and synchrotron powder diffraction. Rietveld analysis was performed using individual as well as combined data. Comparisons were made between phase ...
Models of adsorbate dissociation by energetic electrons are generalized to account for activated sticking and chemisorption, and used to simulate the rate kinetics of electron beam induced chemical vapor deposition (EBID). ...
The structure and physical properties of a thin titania sol-gel layer prepared on silicon and silica surfaces were examined. Spectroscopic (FTIR, UV-VIS spectroscopy), refractive index (ellipsometry) and microscopic ...
A simple room-temperature solution chemical route for bulk synthesis of high quality ?- Bi2O3 nanowires has been demonstrated. The nanowires have a diameter of about 50 nm and a length in the range of several to tens of ...

Zinc sulfide (ZnS) nanoparticles are of interest for their luminescent and catalytic properties which are useful in bio-medical, electronic and photovoltaic devices. However, ZnS nanoparticles undergo reversible and ...
We consider sums over the set of positive integers relevant to construction of periodic Green's functions for diffraction gratings and similar problems, and provide a general formula for a combination of Bessel functions ...
